  1. Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well. I am new to the forum and this is my first post and topic. I am left with no options apart from asking you guys for help with this. The problem is that Windows 10 automatically and without apparent reason keeps adding US English language and keyboard layout to its keyboards. (See Capture 1 attached file) When in fact the only two languages I have installed/added are Bulgarian (my native and a layout I type in) and UK English (the display language) with International English layout (printed on my keyboard along with the Bulgarian alphabet). (See Capture 2 attached file) These two captures are taken within seconds from each other. The things I tried and didn't work: Resetting language settings, display language settings, keyboard layouts multiple times; Checking location settings (set to the UK as it actually is my location); Timezones and time formats settings; Any automatic BS that Windows 10 has; Obviously restating the computer (laptop); What fixes the problem temporarily is actually adding the already appearing as added language and layout in the settings from the second screenshot and then removing it straight after. After this the languages appearing in the pop-out thing from next to the clock go back to the ones I have actually added. Why this is a big issue: This bug is super frustrating as I constantly switch between the languages I type in (Alt+Shift if it matters) and instead of toggling between two options, I toggle between 3 or even 4 (as seen in Capture 1). So I can't reliably know which is my selected layout at the current moment and I end up typing in one language with the wring layout which ends up being something like this: "jdud éq jdud rph.eod udjf mrtkd kd /chd,iur ici dkh.rxiud u.dlrdjw,d" Awesome right? I have checked and this problem is not limited to me and the languages I use. I imagine a lot of bilingual people have to use more than one layout and switch between them. Worst of all is that some of the posts I found of people complaining from the same issue are from 2016 and no fix has been published or implemented in any of the numerous updates to the OS. Multiple fixes have been proposed in some of those forum threads but there seen to be no consensus of which (if any) work. Here are some links that I have found discussing this issue: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-10-keeps-adding-keyboard-layouts https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/windows-keeps-automatically-adding-en-us-keyboard/69aaea0d-f588-4d54-89fa-a632ae7bced3?auth=1&page=1 https://superuser.com/questions/483086/how-do-i-remove-automatically-added-keyboard-layouts#484595 https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/8hle7x/windows_10_keeps_adding_keyboard_layouts_without/ https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1871102-windows-10-us-language-repeatedly-returns I am hoping that maybe with the power of this forum and the community and maybe eventually LMG, we can come with a solid reliable somution and/or even make Microsoft fix this stupid issue that seems to have existed forever now. Thank you, everyone and all the best! Ned
